From past experiance, when an unusually large amount of the white stuff shows up on either posts the battery has been in service for a long time. I've found that the post has deteriorated and the case which in turn has caused "off gassing" or leaking at the terminal. Use to spend gobs of time trying to clean them, only to reappear quickly.
After installing a new battery it goes away. Just my 2 cents worth, no federal granted study to substantiate.
